I have looked at a variety of pouches for my FT-60, and this one is by far the best! It will accept the radio with the belt clip and the remote mic attached. Without the clip and mic it is a loose fit. I added a 1/2" piece of foam in the bottom to raise the radio slightly making the knobs more accessible. I removed the bungee cords from the outer loops and ran them directly to the velcro attachment tab. The bungees now run on both sides of the volume knob, but doesn't restrict it's movement. I have found the 5.11 Slickstick molle attachment tabs perform very well. Some have commented that the case material may scratch the radio display. I will investigate this more and may add a soft material insert. The attached pictures show the 5.11 Radio case connected to a Maxpedition Mongo Versipack. I ran the speaker / mic cable up the Mongo's strap and it lays nicely for tilt-head communications. Very Impressed!
I bought this to hold my Baofeng UV-5 radio with a headset adapter and extended battery. I fits in easily, but is a little too roomy for this setup and flops around a bit. The construction is first rate and the MOLLE straps are superb.
I don't personally care for the shock cord "closure" but that seems to be the standard. It's easily configured to snake around the radio knobs and antenna. This pouch is as good as it gets for one that is not molded for/to your particular radio setup.
I will get around to cutting some custom foam inserts for it at some point in the near future, and that will elevate it to 5-star performance level
It's 5.11, so you know the quality is going to be top notch (unlike some odd ball manufacturers/sellers on Amazon eBay).
As with all or most of the 5.11 pouches, the molle straps are built it so there's no added expense of getting malice clips (TERRIBLE) or Blackhawk Speed Clips (good) and worrying about getting the correct length etc. The Slipstick system is easy to use and thread through the molle. I've noticed 5.11 has went to a new snap at the bottom of the strap: the female side of the snap is open on both sides, means sand, dirt, water won't get trapped in the "hole" and prevent the male end from pushing in (giggity). The snaps hold well too...good improvement.
The pouch itself is simple and accommodating to any a range of radio sizes. I had another pouch that was super tight and required two hands to get my radio into it. I wear this on a molle equipped duty belt (Volund Gearworks), so I can't really get two hands to the pouch with the belt...
